Hi guys,

I bought a flat a few years ago and have been meaning to get round to sorting the extractor fan. It's very old and is so loud you can't watch the TV in the adjoining living room when it's on. I've looked up how to replace an extractor fan and it looks straightforward, however, mine is so old it looks nothing like the ones in the videos. I was just hoping to get some advice would I be able to replace mine with something like a vent-axia silhouette. I've provided a picture of my current fan. It;'s above some cupboards and not attached to an outside wall.

While your Fan is mounted in the ceiling it will probably be ducted to the external wall.
The following is your Fan and should be a simple swap over job to fit:

Its worth checking that it is clean inside, you may find that reduces the fan noise, here is an example of a very noisy bathroom fan sounded like a tractor, which I inherited, and took the cover off. Once cleaned out you can hardly hear it.(it does actually work honest) They may also be clogged behind the fan in the ducting too worth checking that.
